Faced with so many challenges, from budget cuts and recruitment shortages to the wellness of students and teacher, secondary schools are already under strain. Problems with IT provision simply add to the pressure, causing unnecessary stress and disruption and, potentially, overwhelming your internal IT resource.
Choosing to work with an experienced IT support partner can alleviate the stress caused by technology. Those frustrating, time-consuming experiences become a distant memory.
The Platform 365 for Education IT Support for Secondary Schools service uses technology to enhance school life, making it easier for you to fulfil your objectives.
We recognise that teachers are time poor. There are a myriad of Education Technology (EdTech) applications available, which, if implemented in the right way using the right network setup and equipment, could relieve some of this pressure. From monitoring student performance and engagement to personalised learning and lesson plan creation, our IT support team can help teachers to get the best out of the EdTech available.
Managing budget constraints and the need to reduce capital and revenue expenditure, while still improving student performance and outcomes, is a challenge for any senior leadership team. Accessing procurement expertise in this highly specialised area of purchasing can lead to significant budget savings.
At Platform 365 for Education, we have over 100 years of combined experience in purchasing IT hardware and software. Our product expertise, knowledge of the market and impartiality, as an independent company, has saved hundreds of thousands of pounds for our clients. We work with you to create a plan outlining the ICT equipment and software that requires updating and replacing. Your current and future requirements, the need for seamless integration with the rest of your IT infrastructure and your budget will form the basis of the purchasing decisions.
A further aspect of the Platform 365 for Education IT Support for Secondary Schools service, which can hold potential cost savings, is the efficient use of cloud-based applications. These applications offer many benefits, including a reduction in the server space required and the cost of equipment maintenance. Scalability, up or down, becomes easier and reliability improves. Perhaps one of the biggest advantages for a busy secondary school is the opportunity that cloud-based applications for schools provide for collaboration.
